Kelvin Mateus de Oliveira (born 1 June 1993), known simply as Kelvin, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for CR Vasco da Gama on loan from Portuguese club FC Porto as a right winger.

Football career[edit]

Born in Curitiba, Paraná, Kelvin spent two seasons with local Paraná Clube in the Série B. In late June 2011, aged only 18, he signed with FC Porto in Portugal.[1]

As teammate Christian Atsu, Kelvin was sent on loan to fellow Primeira Liga side Rio Ave F.C. for the 2011–12 campaign. He made his debut in the competition on 21 August 2011, in a 0–1 away loss against Académica de Coimbra.

Kelvin returned to Porto for 2012–13, spending most of the season with the B-team in the second division. He managed to score, however, three important goals for the main squad as a substitute, helping to home wins against S.C. Braga (3–1)[2] and S.L. Benfica (2–1), the latter coming in the 92nd minute.[3][4]

On 13 January 2015, Kelvin joined Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras on a loan deal.[5] On 2 July of the following year, in the same predicament, he moved to São Paulo FC.[6]
